What are Task Cards? Task cards are a great resource for teachers! Don’t assign a worksheet with 30 questions… break the assignment into task cards! Students may work on one task or a few tasks at a time.
Uses for these Task Cards:
1. Individual work
2. Use as a “Scoot” game- Place one numbered task card and one answer sheet at each desk. At each desk, students will write their answers for the numbered task cards on the correct numbered spots of the answer sheet. When the teacher says, “scoot,” students move to the next desk and repeat the process.
3. Cooperative Group Work- Each group of students will discuss a few task cards at a time and record answers on the answer sheet. They will trade task cards with other groups until they have answered all of the task cards.
4. Walking Gallery- Place the task cards in various places around
the room or tape task cards to the walls. Students will place their answer sheets on clipboards and visit the different task cards.
5. Work for early finishers
